Painting kitchen cabinets

My kitchen cabinets need a fresh coat of paint. They are currently painted a high gloss white, and it is very possible the original paint is oil based. (previous homeowner)
My questions revolve around how to prep the cabinets for painting. I was planning on cleaning them with vinegar, but do I need to sand them?

I would much prefer to repaint them with latex paint, but will it adhere to the oil based paint properly? (assuming it is oil based?)

Also, the hardware is a very ugly (and dirty) copper color. I plan on spray painting them black as a cheap alterntive to new hardware. I've never spray-painted before, but it looks so easy on TV. :) Any tips or tricks?
